for having me. >> michael: kate, we read so much about mississippi. mississippi used to have 14 abortion clinics. now it just has one. how in 2013 does something like that happen? >> well, you know, it's a cumulative effect. it's in the early 80s that it had 14, but now the state has put on restriction after restriction. they have rules that you can't have an abortion after 16 weeks you have to have permission if you're a minor. it forced clinics to close. now you have just one clinic and that is under threat of being closed for the next few weeks. >> michael: that clinic is staffed by a doctor who flies in to work there. it just seems that it's so arcane, the laws that they have there. it doesn't mean that abortion is going to go away. it means that women will leave that state and have an abortion in another state. you spoke with a woman who wanted an abortion. i want to listen to what she had to say. >> so what brings you today? >> well, really it's not a good thing. i have two 11-year-olds who are nine months apart. i have a 7-month-old. my oldest are having to go without. it's really

, whether it was mississippi in '62 or alabama in '63 or onward. federal troops or u.s. marshals. someone has had to come and say you will give these people their god-given rights. >> yeah, look, the speech had a powerful eloquence. but it also had a narrative thread. and what he did was embed his whole argument in the declaration of independence. and whether you're talking about climate change or rights for gay people, which he, uniquely, could make part of the civil rights movement or economic fairness, it all came back into we the people. i think it's the best inaugural address. i agree, most second inaugurals are terrible. i would ak cemeccept franklin roosevelt and in some sense, the president was echoing that when he talked about the shrinking few who do very well and the growing many who barely get by. but what is amazing is it was a bookend. and i think rick's right about this. it was a bookend to the reagan speech in 1980. it made progressive vision for america mainstream. it claimed the mainstream of america for progressive values. i think it's a very significant speech. >> well

, you can see them there, mississippi, arkansas, north dakota and south dakota. a lot of people, a lot of women and men as well around the country might be very surprised to learn that those states only have one place where women can go, and that is not only because there's a concern for the safety of those that work at those clinics in that state, it's also because there isn't an appetite to support more facilities like that in those states, correct? >> that's absolutely the case. and you know, when you start thinking about the jurymandering of the drawing of political lines that support the most right wing candidates across the country, democrats, thomas, received more votes than republicans did, but because of the jurymandering during redistricting it has been difficult to get pro-choice people elected to congress. perhaps in these states, citizens there can send a message, not just about abortion, but about affirming american values and rights to privacy. as nancy pointed out, this is a decision that should be between a woman and her doctor, not some politician from mississippi or

mississippi, south carolina, west virginia, wyoming, iowa, all of which use this mid deem charge rather than felony. and what we find in these 13 other states is that there are higher rates of drug treatment participation, lower rates of drug use, and even slightly lower rates of violent and property crime. so again, we can prove we can have safer communities. and then of course there are the unintended consequences of a felony conviction. consequences that really can cause great damage to a young life for many decades out. the very three things that can keep someone successfully in his or her recovery, access to housing, education and employment are put farther out of reach because of a felony conviction, especially in a down economy, someone with a felony has great difficulty even accessing 5 a job that pays minimum wage. putting these felony convictions to a whole population of young people, we really perpetuate a chronic underclass which benefits none of us. and then of course there's the inequity in the criminal justice system. even though we can show that drug use rates are quite simil

in first grade in mississippi that was integrated, to go from where we were in 1969, to now where a black man getting inaugurated president of the united states is nothing spectacular. that's amazing. knew said something very very important. someone said yesterday that when we knew the country was solid was not when george washington became the first president but when we received the election of the second. yesterday, i think you're right. when we saw we passed a certain point was the second election of president obama. it wasn't the economy was bad, it wasn't bush was bad, this where is the nation decided to elect a man and didn't get caught up on the race question. it was a very big moment. >> by the way, you can oppose the president on virtually every issue without opposing him because he is a black man. that is just as important. >> and his birth certificate. >> he is just a man -- by the way, mika, let's talk donald trump and ask if he will do that the next four years. >> the commentary about the president's address yesterday and none of it talks about the fact he's an african-ameri
in mississippi and when the people have the actual opportunity to vote at that ballot box they vote no and ject it. we saw the abortion ban in south dakota twice defeated by the people. i think the thing here is that a politicians that are being elected are stealth. they don't run. they don't come to your door saying they're going to be run and be antichoice or going to restrict women's access. they come and talk to you about the economy and jobs. then they get there and people are finding that these laws are passed. many of which are outrageous and they don't accept. we saw that in virginia when there was outrage over the mandatory transvaginal ultrasound. womespontaneously showed up at e capital saying shop this nonsense >> ifill: your folks have said we're moving from talking about the baby to talking about the mother and talking about women. but if issues these personhood issues, these amendments and the transvaginal discussion that happened in virginia, how is that fit into your strategy? >> it's just funny for nancy to completely write off state legislators who are very close to the peopl
level. in mississippi, the last remaining abortion clinic may be forced to shut down because of a recently enacted state law. governor bryant wants to end abortion in his state and he wants that clinic gone. let me play for you what he said. >> my goal of course is to shut it down. >> i was surprised by this number. nationwide, state legislatures have passed more than 130 bills to reduce access to abortion over the last two years. so are these efforts to sort of make roe v wade less relevant working? >> absolutely. the effort on the side of those who want to take away a woman's right to decide and a woman's right to choose is to make all abortions illegal, but overturning roe is not something they can do, so they are passing legislation in as many states as possible to make it more difficult, more humiliating, more expensive for women who need to terminate their pregnancies to be able to do so. and in fact, the last two years and especially this last year, 2012, there was an assault on women's access to reproductive health care, including, by the way, for the first time since
. south carolina, mississippi, they started susceding. they said, we're out of here. so when he came to his inaugural speech on the first one, he was trying to keep the southern states in and trying to keep the border states from leaving. so he said some things that were so conciliatory that even the abolitionists at the time thought he wasn't what they were hoping for. he wasn't really against slavery. he said he was but they thought he didn't prove it. they thought he was too cautious and they criticized him for this. but every the civil war broke out and so much blood was spilled and so much harm was done to our nation, 620,000 people died in the civil war, president lincoln came back four years later, and on that speech his second inaugural speech was a bold defense of the union cause and an argument that slavery must go. and he didn't pull any punches on the second one. now, he was not boldacious. he was not offensive. he was trying to be as conciliatory as he could be, but he made very clear that america was going to be one whole and not divided and, two, it would be slave-free
's hear from a republican, jimmy in mississippi. caller: good morning. several things. first off, the hispanic people, i have a great regard for those people, because they're very family-oriented. i do not have any problem with them coming into this country, as long as they are coming into this country legally. i think we can utilize our military. instead of people having to serve three or four times a going overseas, fighting in afghanistan or iraq, we can utilize our military and military intelligence to help on that. along with the good people that get across our borders, we get some very undesirables. i think terrorists are probably coming across our borders and we do not realize it. another point i would like to make, i don't think abortion should be used as a form of birth control. i can understand situations of or rape, then i would agree. i don't believe it should be used as birth control. the other point is our president went into this country on his first term talking about working on our infrastructure. we have a 300,000 bridges in this country that failed at a rate of
lake or river levels like the mississippi or the two-foot drop in lake erie over the last year. we must anticipate and adapt our lives where possible. as the 113th congress begins, our primary aim will be to welcome the challenges of change not cling to the past. working together, as the president challenged, america can meet the test of a new day. my brother steve, the inventor, innately grasps this challenge. so must we. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentlelady from california seek recognition? >> to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentlewoman is recognized for one minute. >> mr. speaker, i also rise to recognize the 40th anniversary of the supreme court roe v. wade decision this landmark decision granted american women the right to make their own personal health decisions. in consultation with her family and her faith and without government intrusion. mrs. capps: however, this right has been under steady attack in recent years with a clore goal, to make it so difficult to obtain
is in mississippi on the percent is he vut amendment. we reject that. they rejected an outright ban in south dakota twice. when the people have a chance to put that ballot in the box, they reject this kind of anti-choice activity. now elections matter, and you have to elect politicians that protect that right and that freedom and not the folks, quite honestly, like the todd akin's who showed up here and don't even understand how a woman's body works let alone him making a decision for women across this country. >> you have to admit that his comments, his unfortunate comments kind of field your movement. i think there was a poll out that women under 30 have no idea what roe v. wade is. they have no idea! todd akin introduced it and he did the work for you. >> not necessarily. we fought so that our daughters and our granddaughters wouldn't have to worry about this issue. what we learned in todd akin, an anti-choice politician, you forever have to be vigilant, that they never stop, they don't give up until they deny women this basic freedom in this country. so, yes, younger generation, they are workin
due respect to our friends in mississippi, the railroad is a good question you raised. federal government gave the land to the railroads to run railroad across the united states. talk about a false choice. the false choice is saying government doesn't do anything good. >> did i say that. >> i put words in your mouth. if you on with me more you're going to find out i'm going to put words in your mouth. martha: bob, mary katherine, look forward to with more fun. >> four years to get mad at him. >> don't hit too hard. martha: i like when you come up to the set. >> we do too. gave us 60 seconds notice from the basement. martha: good workout. bill: i thought you were a georgia girl? you're north carolina? >> i went to school in georgia but go dogs. martha: he is laughing. bill: iran claims that an american pastor imprisoned since september will be freed. his wife says don't buy it for a minute. why she says that report is just a flat-out lie. >>> plus as the gun debate rages we talk with criminals serving time on how they got their weapons. there's the sign to the bullpen. here he c
legislation that covers alabama, mississippi, southern illinois, all parts. so if ten is not magical, i'm willing to go to three as a cliff. so we're there. [laughter] but that said -- because the assault clip changes the type of gun. it dramatically changes it. two, i do think of comprehensive background checks that deal with criminal activity would be essential to anything closing on that loophole. obviously, the seller pieces you can do. i do think usually people think about executive order, something the president would seen, i think he has to direct the attorney general as a measure of each attorney what they're doing on gun prosecutions. we have a u.s. attorney position here in the city of chicago. it's opened up. our gun prosecutions as a city compared to, you compare it to others, kind of u.s. attorneys' positions, lags other ones. there should be a standard, and they should be measured and have to report. and can that is within the executive authority because you have gun laws that sit on the books and do not get prosecuted. so i would put the prosecution and holding the u.s. a
the appalachian and the plains of majesty and mississippi and colorado works their way to the sea, thank the work of our hands. finishing one more report for the boss on time, stitching another wound or uniform, the first brush stroke on a portrait or the last floor on the freedom tower jutting in to the sky that yields to our resilience. one sky, toward which we sometimes lift our eyes, tired from work, some days guessing at the weather of our lives, some days giving thanks for a love that loves you back. sometimes praising a mother who knew how to give or forgiving a father who couldn't give what you wanted. we head home through the rain and weight of snow or the plum blush of dusk but always, always home, always under one sky our sky and always one moon like a silent drum tapping on every rooftop and every window of one country, all of us facing the stars, hope a new constellation waiting for us to map it. waiting for us to name it together.

that is going on, whether it's joplin, missouri, or gulfport, mississippi, or new orleans, louisiana, or new york, new york, or the boardwalk in new jersey and many of those small -- not-so-small beach communities, very highly populated in that area, there is a lot of suffering, but it is important for us to try to when we can and we see that the response is not what it should be, madam president, to take the time to push out some reforms, to fix what we can fix so that the $60 billion that i hope we will send to them can be used smartly, quickly, efficiently. and i am a living proof as a senator that has had to literally help lead the rebuilding of the gulf coast along with my friends from texas and mississippi and florida, and living proof as my hometown is new orleans, my brother is now the mayor and he's rebuilding that city every day. 80% of the residential communities on the east bank were destroyed completely. i mean, that would be like 80% of the district of columbia but not anacostia, but 80%, which would be the whole other side of d.c. on this side of the river being uninhabitable.
